    Loud.

    I—Dimity—just found this post hidden away. I don't even remember writing it, but so little has changed. Except now my son has a keyboard.

Why I Run: Sandra Looft

Today begins another installation of Why I Run, essays and other thoughtful words from a variety of mother runners who tell us eloquently and honestly why they, um, run. These will run off and on between now and January 6th.
We are always on the lookout for more essays, poems, lists, or however you want to tell us Why You Run; here are the guidelines. And if you want to spend some time reading past essays they’re all collected right here, it’s a great way to get inspired (and sneak away from the inlaws, if need be).
Without further ado, here’s Sandra.  

Sandra describes herself as “a writer, a mother (runner), and a recent grad school survivor…

Winners of the 5 Champion Sports Bras (Finally!)

Winners of the 5 Champion Sports Bras (Finally!)

I forgot to pick up my kids after school on Thursday. I was at a program at said school with Ben, my first grader, until about 2:30, then headed home, thinking our neighbor was getting them at 3:30. When I pulled out of the driveway at 3:45 to run an errand–and saw her car in her driveway–I freaked. And then I realized she was getting them on Friday, not Thursday, and today was Thursday.

That’s a small slice of where my head has been this week, so it’s no wonder that we forgot to award the Five Champion Sports Bras from this Hump Day Giveaway.  Thankfully, Genevieve on our Facebook page reminded me of the oversight…

Drum Roll for the NordicTrack Treadmill Winner!

Drum Roll for the NordicTrack Treadmill Winner!

Thank you all for taking time to vote for the best six-word sentence for the drool-worthy NordicTrack Commercial 1750 Treadmill; Samantha is the winner! Samantha, you lucky duck, please email us at runmother at gmail dot com and we’ll set you up with the ‘mill, as well as delivery and installation. (Huge thanks to NordicTrack, btw: we’re making your company an honorary mother runner…think a badass mother runner shirt would fit over the display screen on a treadmill?)
If you’re one of the 1,400+, including me and Sarah, who didn’t win, here’s a little something to start your day. It’s not a brand spankin’ new NordicTrack ‘mill installed for you, but it’s still pretty good…

Follow This Mother!

Follow This Mother!

This holiday season is unlike any other for mother runner Jen Correa, husband Pedro and their two young children Pedro, 7, and Alyssa, 3. This Staten Island, NY family lost their home to Hurricane Sandy, though with help from family and friends they slowly are getting back on their feet. Jen, 37, who had trained to run this year’s NYC Marathon, found her way back to running thanks to fellow bloggers and friends who sent her running clothes and shoes (true friends indeed!). Says Jen of the sport that’s carried her through her 20s, getting married, having babies, being injured…and now through the devastation of losing so much: “Running is actually when I feel the most relaxed…

The sign that hangs (sometimes invisibly) in my kitchen.

Hump Day Giveaway: 26 Acts of Kindness

Put good into the world.

That’s the guiding principle I try to live by, and the main value I want my kids to remember. It may sound naive and idealistic, but I want to leave this world a better place than I found it.

While that’s a great lifetime goal, the day-to-day application of it can get really hard. Despite the sign hanging in my kitchen, I am not always nice. I can easily forget what I so dearly need to remember when I’m dealing with long-division homework and whining kids who don’t want the dinner I made and a sore lower back and clumps of dog hair under every chair leg.

But as I said before, Newtown has touched a nerve so raw and so maternal, I can’t help but be back on task, reporting for duty…
